The final two presentations.

(we have no room left for any more speakers! 17 talks and 3 demonstations will keep you busy. We have to leave some space for eatin', drinkin' and chattin' !!)


Mairaid Hennessy will give "The Pillion's Perspective" on motorbike travelling. A really interesting and much overlooked subject. And a great incentive to bring your significant other ( is that the PC term now for wife/husband/partner/girl/boy friend?) to Enniskillen? You might also learn what all those digs in the ribs mean!!


Drew Millar will describe his journey From Belfast to Cavannacarragh (slowly) Enigmatic title but you will understand if you come to Enniskillen!

Tempus is fugiting and numbers increasing. We will be restricting numbers to ensure an enjoyable and friendly weekend so if you want to be sure of your place, get registering now at

just signed up to attend. I went to the meeting in British Columbia last year and am looking forward to doing it again in a new place. I was on a big North America trip then and am backpacking now so will probably be trying to hitchhike there unless I work out something before. I think I'll be on the west coast making my way north beforehand. See you all soon

Hi Craig

So was I! Unfortunately Ruth emailed a few days ago to let me know that she would not be able to make the meeting.

Hi Aiden, I agree, Top marks to the organizers.

Thanks for the comment on the photos, and yes, anyone can use any shot on their own site, no worries. Include a link near the image back to my gallery if you like.

If anyone wants a print, I can do that too, but I'd charge something for that.
If any company wants to use one to promote products then have a chat with me.

Merv.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
